Now, when I learn a song that uses the notes, say, in this order: BBBF#F#AB, in my head, as I play, I'll say those notes. Now, when I learn a song via tab, say, the tab is: E:7---3---5---2--7-5-0--3----5----2 I'll say the numbers in my head. Does anyone else do this, or am I hampering myself by not saying the notes? I mean, I know the notes and a good deal of theory, so if someone just says "play AGF#BCDA" I can do it, no problem. It just seems like a nuisance to have these numbers in my head when I play. Anyone else do this? Anything to help stop it? I mean, for the tab i posted above, BGAF#, so on...I know the notes, I try to say them in my head but I go back to saying the numbers in my head. Get what I'm saying?
